Music at Treeton C of E Primary School


At Treeton C of E Primary School we follow the National Curriculum. In Music the National Curriculum aims are to ensure that all pupils:


  • Perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians.
  • Learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence.
  • Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.

Throughout our school we deliver Music through the Charanga Musical School Scheme which is developed and provide by Rotherham Music Service. We are extremely passionate about the teaching, learning and assessment of Music ad we feel Music brings both adults and children joy and happiness. We deliver high quality teaching of Music through the Charanga Music scheme that engages and inspires pupils to develop an enjoyment and passion for Music. Through the National Curriculum we aim to assist children in developing their self-confidence, creativity and achievement within Music. As pupils progress through KS1 and KS2 they will develop they musical skills further which will allow the pupils to compose and perform successfully with an increased awareness of the knowledge and skills involved. We hope to inspire and give every child the opportunity to experience and enjoy music through a variety of fun and engaging opportunities. We also aim to promote pupils’ social, cultural, spiritual and global development through music.




Using the Charanga Musical Scheme ensures that all children across our school are developing their musical knowledge and skills. All pupils will develop their Musical skills in:


  • Listening and appraising
  • Singing and Musical instrument practise
  • Composition
  • Improvisation
  • Performing and sharing


Teaching Music through the Charanga scheme allows the the delivery of Music to be tailored to the specific year group whilst exposing the children to a range of musical genres and musical styles. The scheme allows for differentiation within activities so the tasks and activities will challenge all learners. As a school we work closely with the Rotherham Music Service who provide us with opportunities to support the delivery in our school.

  • Use their voices expressively and creatively by singing songs and speaking chants and rhymes.
  • Play tuned and untuned instruments musically.

Throughout COVID:


Due to the impact of Coronavirus the Charanga Musical scheme has adapted its Music provision to keep adults and children safe. The adapted scheme has been devised to support learning in the classroom and at home. The range of resources provided ensure safe music-making can take place in line with the current guidance on singing and playing instruments.


Using Charanga at home:


Throughout our school, our teachers will frequently use Charanga to set home learning. This provides extra Music learning opportunities to support and develop the skills and knowledge of our pupils at Treeton.
